Do you like working with your hands? Have you ever gone by a construction site and been intrigued by the way raw materials are used to create a house, office, or factory? Do you find the thought of five-day-a-week, nine-to-five office job for the rest of your life distressing? Finally, are you looking for a career field that is viable wherever you may travel in the state of Texas, the United States, or the world? If so, a career in the construction industry may be right for you.

If you're considering a career in the construction field, earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Construction Management from TSTC West Texas is a must. Not only will you learn construction techniques, technology, and theory, you will gain hands-on experience in various phases of the construction process and develop expertise in construction management.

In the Construction Management Technology Program you will cover every technical step of the construction process from the first shovel full of dirt to the final certification of occupancy. You'll participate in classroom and lab projects that incorporate project planning (estimating costs and budgeting), development of blueprints, the physical construction of a structure, and the final building inspection. Construction tools, techniques, safety requirements, the mechanical elements of construction, framing, and building codes are all covered in your classes and labs.

Our experienced instructors will engage you in problem solving experiences that you may encounter in the field. You'll develop critical thinking and other essential employability skills (including work ethic, teamwork, and communication skills) that are vital to your success in the construction industry. Depending on your course of study, certificate or associate's degree, you'll have the opportunity to take such courses as:

  • Construction Technology

  • Conventional Wall Systems

  • Floor Systems

  • Architectural Blueprint Reading

  • Construction Estimating

  • Building Codes and Inspections

  • Construction Management

  • Computer Applications

Because your classrooms, labs, and job sites are your work environment, you'll continually be developing the knowledge and self-confidence you'll need to effectively compete for the variety of career options the construction industry provides:

  • Assistant Field Engineer

  • Construction Field Engineer (with experience)

  • Construction Supervisor

  • Construction Manager

  • Specialty Construction Careers (Carpenter, Cabinet Maker, Framer, Safety Technician, Codes Inspector, Estimator, etc.)

Career opportunities are available in both the government (federal, state, and local) and commercial arenas in industrial construction (retail, restaurants, schools, bridges and dams) and residential construction (homes, housing subdivisions, remodeling).

Whatever your goal, consider the Construction Management Technology Program at TSTC West Texas as your passport to success in the construction field.
